Issue Details

  • I want to know the error associated with the "Non-Linearity" of my DAQ device.
  • What are the INL and DNL errors in the specifications of my DAQ device?

Solution

The errors associated with non-linearity is given in the Differential Non-Linearity (DNL) and Integral Non-Linearity (INL) error specifications of your device, which are directly related to the Digital-to-Analog Converter (ADC) resolution. In the document Specifications Explained: NI Multifunction I/O (MIO) DAQ, you can find the details about this and other specifications.
